My dad Bukka White should be on the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.He influenced the group Cream,Led Zeppelin,Keith Richards,(The Rolling StoneS)and others.My dad music has been performed by many big name stars.Bukka White died in 1977 a broken man because he was never paid royalty he was entitled.I am sixty five and I work harder than I ever had to work.Trying to get Bukka White Royalty,with very little response.Most of the time I am simply ignored.

The Mills Brothers could make a good case for early influences

And Cab Calloway

Cab Calloway should have been inducted as an Early Influence anytime during the first five years of the Hall's existence so he would have been able to accept the award (Calloway passed away at 86 in 1994). If the Hall ever does induct him, he won't be able to attend the ceremony, sadly.

m8 do u even Dust Bowl Ballads?

Dust Bowl Ballads is a collection of some of the most coma-inducing "songs" ever recorded. Nasally whining and amateurish guitar playing were the order of the day on this dreck.

Then again, folk does not require musical excellence. One must look to jazz, blues, country-western, and other, most respectable genres for that. To use an analogy, folk is to music what Pabst Blue Ribbon is to alcoholic beverages: cheap, disposable, and bad. Jazz is more equivalent to the finest-tasting champagne, and as such ages much better.

I don't necessarily believe that there is such a thing as a proper set of lyrics, but if a songwriter has a gripe about the state of the world, maybe he or she should come up with a legitimate solution and implement it, rather than using his or her music as a backdrop for their so-called "messages." It's one thing for a song to raise awareness of an issue, but to try to proselytize people into accepting your message as a universal standard that should not be questioned, that's completely uncalled for.

You obviously haven't read all my posts here if you think that's my MO. Also, I don't ever recall stating that my opinions were carved in granite. I don't pretend to be an expert. I'm just a very knowledgeable music fan. I would rather leave the expert label to individuals like Will Friedwald.

Cheesecrop, you know how I feel bout our young stormtrooper Zach. If there were more songs that praised the overclass (IMO), der Zach would be A-OK with 'political' themes.
